Our first experience at the Osthoff and overall it was great! Amazing property with nice rooms. Very comfortable bed and quiet room despite multiple weddings taking place. Some things I would have improved would be more towels in the bathroom. We could have requested more but seems like a room with a whirlpool tub should have more than two. Also,... More

This place is beautiful! Right on Elkhart Lake, the water is crystal clear. Played a game of bean bags, hit the work out room and enjoyed the pool. The grounds provide picturesque scenes everywhere you look. And the staff is top notch! They bring this gem all together for a great business/vacation!

We started going to the Osthoff when we lived in Chicago, and continue to visit even though we now live on the East Coast. The rooms are always clean and well maintained. most have been remodeled in recent years. We like that we can get rooms with full kitchens and in-unit laundry (in larger units). Having a full kitchen allows... More

Have been going every spring for the past eight years. The place is very well maintained. Staff always seems to exceed expectations. Have stayed in both wood and lake view and can't find fault with either. The grounds are beautiful and it is a quick walk to the little town of Elkhart lake, the surrounding area is also stunning.

I went to OstHoff with two other families. The two families stayed together in the 3 bedroom. It is very big and with 11 people they slept comfortably. I stayed in the two bedroom suite and it was nice, only downside was their did not appear to be an air conditioning unit in the second bedroom. The person sleeping there... More

We completely enjoyed our stay at the Osthoff, the room was beautiful with everything we needed. We stayed in the two bedroom two bath room overlooking the lake, the kitchen was nice and had all the amenities necessary for a longer stay. Our balcony overlooked the pools and was relaxing and tranquil. The beach was meticulously maintained and was perfect... More

Our room was fabulous, like a condo: 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living room with balcony with lake view, kitchen. My kids loved having their own bathroom! Our 2 favorite on site restaurants were so delicious, a bit pricey, but totally worth it: Lola's and Otto's. Staff were so kind and helpful everywhere we went. We enjoyed the pools, the lake,...

My husband and I stayed at Osthoff for the second time and we loved it just as much as the fist time. Staff is very friendly and professional. Rooms were well appointed. Recommend splurging on the lakeview rooms which have wonderful views from the balcony. We appreciated having a table and chairs on the balcony for eating or reading or... More

Came to resort for a wedding and reception. The facility is expansive and the grounds are beautiful. I found the staff pleasant and helpful. I enjoyed the food at the reception as well. I saw one of the rooms when the bride was prepping. It's cozy and traditional. It's in a great location.

Our family of 5 had a wonderful stay. Lots to do, relaxing, easy!! Our 2br/2ba unit was clean and roomy. We rented a pontoon, kayaks, water bikes, played volleyball, relaxed at the beach. Can't wait to come back. We even left a bag of birthday gifts in the hotel room and they are mailing them back to us!!
